    Authentic, upscale Mexican food and an astonishing variety of tequilas keep the dining rooms and bar buzzing with diners who have discovered this out-of-the-fray alternative. [Eater 38 Member]

    Delicious! And a great deal at happy hour! Got the guac, roasted corn, seafood enchiladas, and lobster taco, all terrific. Also, several kid friendly options not printed on the menu.

    We went here for the first time last night. It was amazing. The lobster guacamole had nice chunks of lobster and avocado. The scallop ceviche was fresh and flavourful!

    Brunch. Check it out! Eggs with chorizo and home fries and CHIPOTLE BACON. Yeah, I know, if your reading this after brunch you're disappointed. Fundito is awesome too!

    the drinks were delicious but a little strong. really good Mexican fare that's high-level yet accessible. service was good, but restaurant was very hot on a warm summer night

    Imaginative Mexican cuisine finally comes to Portland, with a nod to authentic ingredients and preparations. Try a tasting flight of tequila, and an order of carnitas de puerco.

    When you want a good fancy dinner in Portland, there's really only two options. This is one of them

    you can ask for a special salsa if you like food spicy. it's not so spicy without their special salsa, which is quite good.

    The cucumber Margarita is perfect if you like a drink that is not too sweet. Food is incredible too!

    Good food but the $3.25 "fresh squeezed" orange juice is a lie.
